Blaine Reed Meteorites - List 137 Chelyabinsk part 2 and Colorado Springs show

Blaine Reed Meteorites - List 137 Chelyabinsk part 2 and Colorado Springs show

Dear Collectors,
I rapidly sold out of the Chelyabinsk pieces I had on my last posting. There were some 20 of you that left requests for specimens and probably a good number of you that didn't contact me for thinking I had already sold all. Anyway, I just picked up another batch of pieces and just got home with them last night. So, if you requested a piece, I now have your piece (in the size you requested). I'll be contacting you as soon as I can with the details. If you didn't request a piece but wanted one none the less, I have a small amount (100 grams or so) available in sizes between a couple grams and 20 grams or so.

Colorado Springs Show: June 7th-9th (I'll be gone from the 6th through the 11th)

I don't usually do small retail shows. However, this year the folks running the show have a BIG meteorite theme. They have done extensive media work to let the public know that they will have the Canon City roof (that the Canon City meteorite fell through in 1973, as well as a piece of that meteorite I believe). They will also have a display case of Chelyabinsk and a LARGE collection of Lunar meteorites. Lots of special meteorite things and they could not find a meteorite dealer to offer specimens to the public. They finally talked me into the job. To be honest, i have a LOT of other hot irons in the fire right now so I probably won't be at my best preparation wise for this one (have gout at the moment, surprisingly painful and makes it hard to move to get much accomplished at the moment). Anyway, for those of you that might like to visit this show (let me know if there is anything special you want me to bring) it will be at the Western Museum of Mining and Industry: 1025 North Gate Road, Colorado Springs, CO (I-25 at exit number 156A).

I'll try to pull together some real list offerings in the not to distant future. I have plenty of "new" material but these "irons in the fire" have me extremely tied up (and stressed) at the moment so i just don't have time to do any cataloging right now.
